MY NEW HOME OFFICE SPACE


With all the extra time I've been spending at home due to COVID, I tend to start re-arranging my home. Moving pictures, rearranging furniture, and re-painting a room or two. Recently, I got the urge to re-do our office space. Since I have so many odds and ends that were my mother's or my grandparents, I've been wanting to find a space to display them all and since we don't use our office very much, I figured it would be the perfect place to go nuts and fill up every nook and cranny.   


My favorite wall turned out to be what I call, "the clock wall." For some reason, my grandfather had an overabundance amount of clocks. The cuckoo clock hung in my grandparents' dining room for years until it stopped working, but as a little girl, every hour, I loved seeing the little bird pop out.

My New Office Space and Just A Few Things I love.

While trying to stay positive with all the challenges that 2020 has delivered thus far, and while being quarantined at home, I have been focusing on home projects that I have been wanting to get done for a long time, but haven't had the time. We finally built our garden, completed much-needed yard, and landscaping work.  

When we built our home, for some reason, when installing the sheetrock and texture, the doorbell got covered up. Of course, we didn't realize it until we were finished with the house and truthfully, we didn't really mind. I added this door knocker and recently thought this bell added some character as well.

Vintage Pink, Green and Gold Trimmed Glassware.

I always knew that one day I would inherit my mother's and grandmother's jewelry but I never thought I'd be more excited to inherit my grandmother's and great-grandmother's fancy dishes, (that's what she always called them).


I've always loved the idea of grouping together dishes by color in almost a rainbow display, so with a lot of the same color hues, that's what I decided to do. 
Starting with her favorite, pink.

Finished Guest Room

Last year, my oldest son surprised us one day by announcing that he decided to join the Air Force. After he swore in, his next big announcement was that he was going to be leaving for basic training in two weeks. Even though I was extremely proud, knowing that he would be leaving so soon, made me an emotional wreck. My oldest son was grown up and off to start his own adventure. 
After he left, I needed something to occupy my mind, something that would motivate me to get out of bed. That's when I decided to turn my son's old room into a guest room. Since we have only lived in our home for about three years, my son never really settled in, I think that he knew he would be leaving soon. 


When trying to plan on what exactly to do with the new spare room, I took into mind that when my son came home, he would need a place to stay so I didn't want to make the room too feminine. I also had a lot of vintage furniture and decor that I had been wanting to find a place for in our home. 
Everything I added to this room has some sentimental value.

Vintage Home Decor & Bistro Tile

I love finding new charming accents for my home. I am always changing things around, rearranging my bookcases, shelves or table decor. 


These cheese plates are some that I found in a second-hand shop along with these brass candlesticks. 
These ceramic tile canisters, from Anthropologie are my new favorite kitchen accents. The Bistro tile reminds me of a cafe in Paris that I've always wanted to visit. Maybe one day I'll get the opportunity.
